Carla Casulo, MD, associate professor in the department of medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center, discusses recent research for new frontline options for patients with newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma (FL).

A large randomized study looked at frontline treatment with the combination lenalidomide (Revlimid) plus rituximab (Rituxan) compared to standard chemotherapy. The study aimed to establish non-inferiority, but it was found that the 2 regimens were not dramatically different, says Casulo.
